"This is a favorite dish served at breakfast or brunch. I like to accompany it with a good-sized country sausage and a slice of fresh orange twisted as a garnish. It is a variation of French toast, only I use French bread. It makes all the difference!" -The Captain Jefferds Inn, Kennebunkport, Maine
